    Thanks. I agree it’s a neat feature, but it should never have been made mandatory; they are well aware of the tag abuse and non-labeling that goes on, and this was easy to forsee. Should make a great story, particularly with the YouTube founders all over the press at the Webby awards yesterday.

    Although one of my stalkers on reddit has already downvoted the story to zero reddits. Lord, could these people pull their fingers out for a second and look at the larger picture?

    I just now checked the embedded videos on my blog and am delighted to find the feature disabled. Like other people here I’m looking at alternatives but meantime, thanks to the wordpress team for acting so fast and so effectively.

    Marked as resolved.

    Kind of weird how that one turned out. Looked good from the beginning until we saw it in action.

    Great idea but not well worked out.

    Exactly. I’m very glad oldgreypoet started this thread and others contributed what they saw.

    YouTube have now adapted the feature so it only plays the slideshow at the END or when you hit stop or bring up the menu. But it’s still the default, meaning that Blogger blogs are your best source of fatty porn and snuff films right now. Disembedded said there’s some major media coverage today, and my blog post is Dugg, Stumbled, and reddited (although it’s not very popular). Hopefully YouTube will catch on that they should not make this the default; I would imagine the first press release from an irate radical cleric who opposes gun control should do it.

    Of course that’ll mean they have to admit to making a mistake. ;)

    When faced with an irate, violent, gun-advocating cleric, would you not admit to pretty much anything?

    If this doesn’t hit the media on Monday, we’ll have to go trawling Andrew Sullivan’s blog for skanky YouTube “related videos” and that should at least be good for a laugh, because he DOES get outraged easily.

    And they’re still up on his blog!! Maybe partly because he’s on his way to Provincetown for the summer right now (poor thing), and he has “interns” who are largely running his show.

    Poor baby. There’s no better time to embarrass a touchy blogger than when he’s gone on vacation, because he resents it all the more and his enemies ADORE piling on him when he’s away working on his tan I mean his novel.

    No, it’s just the weekend. Give it three more days; takes them awhile to catch on. Valleywag might pick it up today; if they don’t, they won’t at all. But the mainstream media is gonna go loopy if they can point to the competition and say “look, porn!” It’ll be a bigger story than Paris the jailbird!

    But nobody likes it on Digg or Reddit; it’s down to zero on those.

    Huh, that’s bizarre. It’s not just voted down, it was removed. Now that, to me, pretty much kills the usefulness of Truemors. I mean, if they’re censoring truthful, accurate posts that are properly sourced, how useful a site could it be? I’m done with them.

    YouTube is getting old, Its great watching people do there work while listening to great classical music by the best compossers, Bethoveen, Mozart, and Puccini. They have videos that refresh every 30 seconds that show what the great hosts are doing. Come and check it out at http://www.beethoven.com They even do requests.

    Sounds like classical music porn webcams. I’m not touching that with a ten-foot baton!
